Craic Capitalism is a global phenomenon.

Following the overwhelming response to Ian Duncan Smith's book, The Devil's Tune, the Open Council book club is back with a recommendation from Grant Overton, of Newburn.

Grant contacted the Open Council to suggest John Holloway's new book Craic Capitalism for the Open Council book club. Members are encouraged to read the book and send in their thoughts and opinions to craiccapitalism@opencouncil.co.uk

The book can be purchased here or alternatively it can be ordered from Newcastle City Library.

Those members who do enjoy the book and need more should note that John Holloway will appear at 11:00am on Saturday 14th May in Sheffield as part of the 'RadicalAesthetics-RadicalArt' idea exchange.
